Pit-bull kills family dog, bites man in Lowell
LOWELL, Mass. (WHDH) -- A pit-bull in Lowell killed another dog and bit a man.
An entire family was chased out on to the street in front of their apartment in Lowell, including a mother and her ten-month-old baby. They had to wait for Animal Control to arrive to remove the dog. This is according to the Lowell Sun. An acquaintance apparently brought the dog, described as a pit-bull, inside. The dog went on the attack, killing the family dog, a small rat terrier named Oreo.
Almost everyone ran outside but at least one man tried to stay in to control the dog using sticks and chairs. That man ran out as well after he was bit on the hand. Animal Control officers brought the dog out after it was seen poking its head out the second floor window. The dog's owner apparently was not at the home when police arrived. That dog will be quarantined while Lowell Police try to figure out what to do with it.
